This high performance tape is supplied with a throw-away blue backing sheet ideal to cut to shape and install on all surfaces that may be damaged from rope burns. These include cockpit coamings, gunwale edges etc. It can also be applied in areas coming into contact with sails, easing passage on a tack or gybe and reducing wear and damage by reducing friction. It has the benefit of being very low friction, allowing sails and ropes to run smoothly over the surface. It is clear, offering a discreet choice to protect against friction rubs.
This tape will stand up to the elements to provide protection in the harshest environments and is UV and temperature resistant, from -40 degrees to 110 degrees centigrade, so this tape will not fail when it really matters. Application is simple – ensure the surface is clean and dry, cut to shape, remove the blue liner from the tape and press down firmly from the centre, making sure to remove all air bubbles.
